Movie Reviews

A Winner meets another Winner
Joyashri Kundu | New Jersey, USA | 09/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Throughout Raj Kapoor's career and Padmini Ramachandran's career, they have both striven to show their artfulness, their oddity, their beauteous visages, or some combination of the above. I am quite close with Bollywood and really what happened in Mera Naam Joker is the coming together of two artists who have shared the stagelights over the span of 30 years. They are well acquainted with eachother, in fact they were great friends. So for them, in Mera Naam Joker it was all fun. This is as well as an explication in Chaplin format of diplomacy.... ooops! I gave it away. However, to hear that it is an excellent movie from a French man, and not expect more from the film, I pupu that. hehehehhehe LOL."
Tears of the Clown
David Bond | France | 08/26/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Apparently not a success when it first came out (too sad, too serious) this is the film where Raj Kapoor perhaps gives most of himself. I do not think it is 'one of history's best movies' but it is an extremely good film. It is he story of a boy who has only a clown-doll to remember his father by and who, despite his mother's opposition, determines to follow in his father's footsteps and himself become a clown. The film is notable for the many changes of mood and tempo reflecting the different periods of the central character's life, each marked by the gift of the clown-doll to a woman he loves (and loses). Raj Kapoor gives a virtuoso performance as the Chaplinesque clown but the lad who plays the character in his early years is also excellent."
The Heart of a Man.

"I think that this is One of History's Best Movies. Raj Kapoor shows a Man who has a Face of a Clown with a Heart which has been Touched by God. It is well written and ,well, The Writer,Director and Producer Is Raj Kapoor who Is "The Charlie Chaplin" of India. A Genius of his time and ours."
Raj Kapoor's greatest, and a wonderful experience....

"I really dislike Bollywood films. So when one comes around that I love, I rave about it. This is Raj Kapoor's masterpiece. It took him 6 years to make it, and it is a heartwarming, beguiling film. Great songs, great performances, and a real sense of beauty make this film a classic Bollywood film. There are so few films made about clowns and the circus, so when one comes around that is this good, you want to grab a hold of it. I saw this at a Raj Kapoor retrospective in Chicago. It only showed once, but I was lucky enough to make it. I'm glad I did. It's my favorite Bollywood film. I generally don't like Indian films, as I find them even more inane and silly than Hollywood ones, but I loved this one."
